Stewart Stickney Makes Best Med

ARTHUR STICKNEY SECOND.
iWind Interferes With the Players
First Bound of the Match
Play Is to Take Place
To-Morrow.
The preliminary round In the amateur
tfhsTTtplon jolf tournament for The Republic
Cup was played resterday on the links of
the rield Club near Blssell's Point, in the
presence of a large crowd of enthusiastic
spectators. There were forty entries, and
of this number the sixteen making the best
scores were quaUfled to play for The Re
publics Cup In class A.
The umbtlla 'ottered by the St. Louis
Golf Association for the best medal score
was awarded to Stewart Stickney. His
brother, Arthur, was a close second, and
Bert McKInney, whom many expected to
come out first, was two strokes behind Ar
thur Btlckney. OharlesScudder, another fa
orlte, was fourth, and C. H. Kirk, the
Philadelphia expert, fifth.
The links were In prime condition, and,
despite an unsteady wind which greatly
handicapped the putting, the medal scores
of the various players were above the aver-
uira 1
Bert McKSey looked like a sure winner!
until Stewart Stickney finished his twelfth i
hole. Un to that tlmn MrKlnnav .j In
the lead by five strokes. Stewart Stickney '
uuiBjieu u met nine noies in lorty-four i
"'". mree more tnan were required i
by MoKlnney In making the same number I
of holes, and enough. In view of Stickney's '
.&wu wuiysimutiii, to assure me lat
ters defeat. In the second half of his
game, however. Stickney showed marked
Improvement, especially at the third, fourth,
fifth, seventh,' eighth and ninth holes, all
of which he tnada with a total of onlv
twenty-four strokes.
Mr. Scudder's performance was rather a
disappointment to his friends, whu were
confident that he would make a better show
ing than either of the Stlckneys or Mc
".V. -"though Mr. Scudder did not
uphold his average, ha displayed more skili
than his competitors and had It not been
for the wind, which seemed to be pur
posely interfering with him, he would have
been nearer the lead than fourth. For In
stance, his' drive from the home tee was
carried by the wind beyond the boundary
line three times in succession.
As often as Mr. Scudder would reckon on
the wind blowing in a certain direction It

had lifted his ball and the gutta-percha

The members of the junior class receiving
awaids were: Albert Donnewald. Walter
Pollmann, Edwin Hendrlx and George Ci
bulka, first honors; Francis Connor. John
McGrath, Joseph Herbers, Jake Lashley,
Eugene Gummersbach. George Stadel. Jo
seph Fleming and Daniel Dillon, second
honors.
The members of the sophomore class who
received awards were: Robert Imbs, John
Schulte. Henry Feehan and Andrew Drew,
first honors; Lawrence Cartan and Clement
Lonergan. second honors.
In the freshman class awards were made
to: Alphonso Ganahl and Ralph Klnsella,
first honors: James Gilmore, Clifton Little,
Louis Desjardincs and Gervalse Galennle,
second honors.
In the academic department first honors
were given to James Lonergan, Prather
Knapp, Frederick Tobin, Thomas Pechan,
he did not want It. Mr. Scudder's ap
proaches were marvelous for their precision
and his putting was one of the most notice
able features of the game.
Arthur Stickney's playing was slightly on
the sensational order. He started off bv
maklng the first hole in five strokes, and
followed up with four holes In four strokes
each. He fell down at the sixth and eighth
holes, taking six strokes for each one. and
then, after some remarkably good playins.
In which his skill and judgment asserted
themselves, he wound up by putting the
ball in the last hole from a distance of
nearly fifty feet.
Little Is to be said of Mr. Kirk's show
ing yesterday, as he failed to gather any
additlonal laurels. His playing, while clever,
was not any better than any of bis pre
vious exhibitions, and he was also handi
capped by the wind.
Speculation as to who will win The Re
public Cup seems to favor Mr. McKInney.
According to the wav the sixtpen nunHfipd
players have been paired off for the next
contest, either McKInney or Stewart Stick
ney will play In the final, with Scudder
or Kirk, and, as It is feared Stickney will
fall down at the crucial moment, as is his
wont, McKInney is looked upon as the pos
sible opponent of one of the other two,
either of whom, it 13 said, he can beat.
Clas3 A has been paired off for the next
contest, which, will take place Monday, as
follows:
S. Stickney vs. GUXert. Adams vs. Blssell,
Dunham vs. Semple, Carleton vs. McKIn
ney, Scudder vs. Meyer, Schwartz vs. Ed

Opposed His Policy.
P.EPUBUC SPECIAU
Washington, June 2L To carry the war
for Cuban reciprocity to the very doors cf
the beet sugar mills is the secret and main
object of President Roosevelt's tremendous
"swing around the circle." to be made dur
ing the coming summer and fall. He has
accepted all the Invitations received to
visit those States whose Senators and Rep
resentatives have been fighting the admin
istration policy, and he will find out In
person if his opponents in Congress are
really backed by public sentiment at home.
The President is dally adding to the I.st
Of States and cities to be visited, and, ac
cording to the plans already made, he will
be almost continuously before the public In
a speechmaklng tour, which will last from
the adjournment of Congress until Its re
assembling In December.
May Inclnde Kansas In Lint.
Among the States to be visited early in
the fall Is Michigan, whose entire delega
tion in Congress ' has been the center of
opposition to Cuban reciprocity. Nebraska,
Minnesota and Wisconsin are also on the
list, and if Representative Long desires, the
President will visit Kantas, whose Repub
lican State Convention passed such strong
resolutions for Cuban legislation, and whose
Republican Senator, Mr. Burton, is fla
grantly defying his party at home and his
party leaders In Washington. Mr. Burton's
speech at last night's conference, in which
he made light ot the Kansas convention
and its platform, has been the topic of com
ment all day.
In every speech during hla tour, which
will estend from Maine io Minnesota and
then to Texas, the Prettient will argue
Cuban reciprocity and try to create a pub
lic sentiment that will compel Congress to
act. It Is not impossible that before he
finishes he may extend his tour to Cali
fornia and States represented by "Boxers"
and "insurgents."
The President to-day promised Senator
Fairbanks and a delegation from Indiana
that he would go to Indianapolis to attend
the annual convention of the Spanish-American
War veterans. He has already accepf-1
an Invitation to attend a convention of the
Spanish war veterans at Detroit on Sep
tember 23.
lie Declines Few Invitation.
Invitations come to the President every
day by scores to visit various parts of the
country. Many of these come by letter
front cities and organizations and others
by visiting delegations. Very few of them
Has ne declined, although he has not defi
nitely promised and arranged dates In all
cases.
Kvery section of the country will be vis
ited, except the far West and California,
but before Congress reassembles In Decem
ber, the President will have been heard on
Cuban rciproclty by hundrds of thousands
of American ciuzens.
The White House' announced the date ot
the President's New England visit to-day
as the last week la August. He will visit
Concord on August 2S and Immediately fol
lowing will speak In the Maine and Ver
mont campaigns.

Wounding His hun.
New Kensington, Pa.. June 21. Dominick
' Sandof, Tony Madron and Louis Madron,
Italians, narrowly escaped lynching early
to-day -at the hands of an Infuriated mob of
several hundred men and boys.
Late yesterday David James, a prominent
citizen, was assaulted by the foreigners, and
Frank James, his son. who rushed to his
rescue, was mortally wounded. Immediate
ly after the shooting the assailants fled,
but were overtaken and lodged In the police
station.
A mob of about 500 soon gathered, but the
prisoners were quickly taken to the railroad
station for lemoval to the Greensburg Jail.
One hundred armed men were deputized as
officers to protect the prisoners.' but no
sooner were they landed In the station than
a rush was made for them.
The building was partly wrecked, but the
officers kept the mob at bay with drawn re
volvers until a carriage was procured and
they were hastily driven to Pittsburg;
Hundreds of the mob pursued the car
riage, but the horses were fresh and soon
outdistanced the pursuers. Later the nrls-
oners were safely lodged In the Greensburg
Jail.

ond ceremony they used their right names.
The first ceremony was performed at Clay
ton by Justice of the Peace J. B. Greensfel
der. The second was performed by a min

the names stated above and were known as
Mn and Mrs. Stoddard when they left the
county seat. Last week the couple con
cluded that they had nothing further to con
ceal. Before telling their parents they con

another ceremony. The squire told them
they would have to get another license.
